TNG veterans including Jake Epstein, Lauren Collins, and Shane Kippel will have cameos, as will Adamo Ruggiero, who played out teen Marco. The homecoming is in honor of the 500th episode of the iconic series, which originally launched as The Kids Of Degrassi Street in 1979.

Sadly Jimmy Brooks, better known as rapper Drake, will not be on hand.

 

 

Since its inception, Degrassi has been at the forefront of LGBT representation, and hasn’t shied away from hot-button issues like sex, drugs and racism. The new season will reportedly incorporate a school shooting and the Black Lives Matter movement.
